The Ishi Calendar—2015 Wall Calendar Daily Planner, with 12 Unique Colorful Photo Images

2015 is just around the corner!  Can you believe it!!  I have just issued my new Ishi Calendar for 2015 and it is available, now, in my Ishi Gallery shop on Etsy!  There are 12 beautiful and unique color photo images for each month of the year. The images are 8.5 X 11 inches and the calendar opens up to 11 X 17 inches, with date spaces for each day of the month, and room to write notes and appointments. It is heavy weight, glossy card stock paper, that is spiral bound.  The still life and landscape images are photographs that have been taken by me, Delores Malcomson. Most of them feature my artistic, painted rock or gourd creations, in complementary compositions. A unique calendar would make a great gift for her, or for him.  To see the Calendar section, in my Gallery, click on this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/IshiGallery section_id=12279747&ref=shopsection_leftnav_10

the other day i had a flower that was mixed in with other flowers.  today i found another one.  another flower.  it is a small bunch of flowers and they are all pink.  mostly the same shade so the difference was not obvious.  the good thing is the difference in the flowers was noticed.  so come this fall the longer petalled ones will be separated.

What happened to the wooden car with wooden wheels and wooden engine?

It wooden go!

Interesting Fact: The species is endemic to the island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), including the adjacent Saona and Gonâve Islands, where it is common and widespread. It inhabits areas from sea-level to 1500 m asl where palm savannas can be found, or other open areas with scattered trees. Where its food trees are present, it has adapted well to city parks and gardens. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmchat )
